Billings - An Israeli El Al flight headed to Los Angeles made an emergency landing in Montana on Sunday morning after the crew reported a warning light indicated a fire in one engine.

However, The Billings Gazette reports that there was no visible fire when the Israeli airline flight landed safely before 06:00 at the local airport.

Officials say there were about 280 passengers and crew on the Boeing 777.

Passengers say the plane was headed to Los Angeles from Tel Aviv when it hit turbulence. Shortly after that, a flight attendant announced that the pilots had seen a cockpit warning light and that the plane would land in Billings.

A spare aircraft was being sent to Billings to complete the flight's journey to Los Angeles International Airport.
